Does anyone know if a B5 Passat 1.8T exhaust system will fit on a B5 A4 1.8T fwd??? I know the downpipe from a B5 Passat 1.8T will fit a B5 A4 1.8T fwd... so I'm wondering if the rest of the system wouldn't be the same since they are very similar cars. Please help me out here

If I had to guess its the same shit, fwd is fwd, should be the same chassis.

theres no y-pipe turning it into two tips so they are probably the same

why don't you just go to techtonics tuning's website, look at a pic of their passat exhaust, look at the fwd a4 exhaust, see for yourself that the part numbers are different and save from someone going out and taking a pic of their exhaust? I'm a passat owner as well and you still need further proof? If thats the case, I wouldn't believe anyone except for the manufacturer of the exhaust.

ok... i've been onto techtonics website and yes the part numbers aren't the same and yes the pics are alil different. But my logic is based on the fact that Audi and VW part numbers don't match for the downpipes, even though they are the same... but I just don't see why Audi and VW would use the same engines, transmissions, and other parts, and basically have a very similar car, but then make different exhaust systems. I don't know I guess I'm just hoping they were the same and I'm just trying to diffinitively prove it.

Simple answer: VW/Audi loves to over engineer shit.

Oh, and the passat is actually bigger than the A4
